1st buy a good inlbs torque wrench

2nd you will have to get it helicoiled or equivalent

or could possibly get it drilled and tapped one size larger, if you are not sure of you abilities then I would take it to a good machine shop for the repair

3rd if no torque wrench use a long allen and only apply two finger pressure at the end, when it has some slight flex it is torqued

if it makes you feel better it probably stripped from over torque at the factory and was seized, when you removed it you took the threads with you
